Viewing Guide: How to watch Villanova Basketball vs. Purdue

New, comments

The Gavitt Games are poised to deliver (finally).

NCAA Basketball: Lafayette at Villanova Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that was fast. Just a few days after destroying Lafayette in the season opener by 40, Villanova gets a big test on the road. As part of the annual Gavitt Games they’ll take on #15 Purdue.

The game should present a clash of styles with the Boilermakers trotting out of the best (and biggest) frontcourts in the country. The Wildcats will counter with more of a small-ball approach and try to space the floor.

Given the results for both schools on opening night this looks like it has the potential to be a great game.

Game Time, TV Schedule: 7:00pm ET. The game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
